To do on the first day of school. Change the questions to be used in high school. "What do you want to learn?" "What do you need to work on?" "How can I help you succeed" "Set three goals for yourself." etc... Keep in the classroom year-round as a reminder to students.
Early Finisher activities - Put this in a ziplog bag and make one for each student as an early finish go to assignment. Have them keep the assignments in the ziplog bag for safe keeping. When they complete a row, column, or diagonal REWARD! This is such a good idea, also keeping in mind that they could always read, study spelling words, etc.
Stuck In The Mud With Little Blue Truck Sensory Activity
Example of a four-part round using 'Dynamite'. Great group activity for vocal warm-ups, which also builds ensemble, whilst developing listening and tone/pitch skills. This could be modified by getting different groups to add in different skills - like over enunciating, projecting, using a quiet tone, etc...
I found this task and thought that it can apply to just about anyone! We all have shoes. Simply chuck them on your desk with a piece of white paper underneath and attempt to draw them for some AMAZING results. Tip- images like above take time! Start with basis shapes and make sure your proportion is accurate BEFORE adding shading/patterning etc
LESSON 1: Objective- Students will combine illustration principles with typography to list the inner pieces of a layered object. (food, landscape, etc.) I recomend using colored pencil for this assignment.
